At times, it has seemed like it was years away, but the day is finally here.
Hardin Memorial Health’s final day of operation is today. The health care provider is finally merging with Baptist Health effective tomorrow. Over the past several weeks, signage and logos have already been changed to reflect the new ownership, which Hospital President and CEO Dennis Johnson says has a bright future.
The merger was originally scheduled to happen in December before it was moved up to September 1st. Hardin Memorial has served the community since its inception in 1954.
